  1. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... UNITY's plan to get into the Eurostar base (they knew where the entrance was) was to crash their plane into the entrance, have El Picaro teleport everyone out at the last moment, then have the three flyers on the team carry the rest through the hole as the backup plane full of UNTIL agents followed them in. As it worked out, mainly 'cause El Picaro's player suggested it, El Picaro got a ride from Dr White, the only female on the team. I don't recall the exact lead-in to this, it was El Picaro's player saying something on the line of "once again, El Picaro gets the woman". Me: (holding up left hand, tapping ring finger) Just remember .... (For those without the UNTIL book, Dr White is married to one of the other team members.) El Picaro: Just because she has ordered, does not mean she cannot look at the menu!
  2. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... Not a game quote, but overheard in the hotel elevator at GenCon: We'd just managed to cram one more gamer into the elevator (Embassy Suites only had 3 of 4 elevators working most of the weekend), and the guy who got on commented "I hope we're not overweight." Response from someone in the crowd, "Of course we're overweight, we're gamers".
  3. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... The past two sessions of my Golden Age Champions game, Captain Patriot has been a guest, and the PC flagsuit brick has been blowing EGO rolls right and left whenever he tries to be calm and rational about actually getting to talk with Captain Patriot, he's my idol ... well, you get the idea. Finally, the player announced "One last try", rolled, and got a 16. Player 2: I think your dice are in awe of Captain Patriot. Original Player: (takes character sheet, writes "Psych Lim: Tongue-tied Around Captain Patriot, 0 points" on it, hands it to me)
  4. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... Last night's game, the PCs were on their way to a meeting with a bunch of other supers from across the country. One PC (female) started asking about the COM scores of the male supers at the meeting. Another player responded "You don't go to a superhero convention to pick up guys!" Later in the session, a player with a speech impediment was trying to suggest forming an information repository, but instead suggested an information suppository. There were lots of comments that would get me in trouble were I to quote them, but I think my contribution should be relatively safe: "It gives a new meaning to the phrase 'info dump'."
  5. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... I was sitting in on a friend's Pulp Hero game the other day: GM to Player One: (after describing the assassin coming through the upper-deck window of the train car we're in) OK, what do you say? before player one could respond, Player Two: (who's browsing through the food table since his character isn't on the upper deck of said train car) Where's the condiments? A couple phases later, a PC drills the gun- and ketchup bottle*-armed assassin through the right shoulder for 9 BODY. Player: Is he right-handed? GM: He was. ________ *Added to his armament after the previous comment ________ And then last night was the regular D&D game. A little background -- one of the PCs, Malachi, is married to a priestess of the Drow good-aligned goddess (don't ask me to spell the name). She's working in the Underdark, but has come up for a couple quick visits before so all of us know about the relationship. The magical alarms go off at the house we've been staying at for the past month, so we head out to help with the search. While checking the bushes by the wall, the ranger suddenly finds a dagger held to his throat by a drow hand. "Malachi, it's for you."

  7. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... Note to self: quit watching MythBusters reruns before reading this stuff. (Let's just say I've got "Bulletproof Water" on video.)
  8. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... I was running a playtest on the first half of a GenCon game the other night. At one point, Seeker (yes, that Seeker, it's for the Anniversary game) tried the old "get villain to shoot at me and Dodge at the last moment" trick ... but a 5 still hit him. The player asked which attack the villain had been using, I replied that it was the laser beam. "Oh, he's using a 'Heat Seeker'? "
  9. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... From last night's D&D game -- at the end of the previous session, the group had run into some brownies with sick senses of humor who transformed all of us into animal forms. Those with animal companions/familiars got to be normal versions of those animals, for everyone else the GM rolled randomly. At the start of this session, we're bringing a player who missed last time up to date. He's very enthused about "being a wolverine", I'd call him bouncy except he never got off the couch. (He's still on pain meds, which may have been part of it.) After the third or fourth "I'm a wolverine!", one of the other players said "If you say 'snick', I'm coming over there and hitting you."

  11. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... Not really a quote, but it was a nice bit and this is the best place to put it. I was playtesting a pulp adventure last night. The PCs were in a gunfight with some Nazi soldiers in a forest. One of the Nazis was covering a PC when another PC shot and killed him, I ruled that the bullet went wide and hit a tree branch. Another player promptly rolled his Unluck to see if the tree branch would land on his head.
  12. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... Not strictly in game, but in the course of an IC brainstorming session: "Do we need a lich ... correction, do we need another lich mad at us?"
  13. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... GM to player: "I don't think you have Weapon Element: Dead Snake for your martial arts?"
  14. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... We're playing D&D, we've gotten into an underground complex of interconnected hallways and small rooms, and for some reason the game promptly degenerated into Scooby-Doo "everyone split up" mode. Our GM is going over some things on the map with one of the female players, when his wife tries to dive in with a question about something her character is doing. The GM is busy with the other player, so he ignores the question. His wife isn't paying attention to this side conversation with the other player, so she asks again. Another player tells her "He's doing [other player's name] ... wait, I mean ...."
  15. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... D&D, said OOC as the GM is having to use multiple dice to show how big the critters that just ambushed us are: "If I get eaten again, I'm gonna be p*****."
